Question 4 Bolt Driveshaft Stuck to Differential?

Dropping the driveshaft to remove my gas tank and swap my dif. Flange to trans came off fine and CSB was able to drop easily enough. Diff to driveshaft feels stuck.

I didn't pull on it terribly hard because I had some other things I was doing so I didn't mess with it too much. All the nuts are removed, do I just need to yank on it more? Is there something else that I need to be doing to remove it?

Heat, PB blaster, hammer?

Take a prybar and wedge it against the stud. It should pop it free from the differential flange.

The pilot has a surprisingly close it... a little corrosion can make it hard to pop apart.
